About the property

Condo 2 Bedroom/2 Bath (Sleeps 4-6)

Our condo

The Martin family has been coming to Sanibel since the1980’s and loved it so much we purchased this unit. We stay here regularly and pride ourselves in having a well equipped, well maintained and clean living space for our guests. We updated the unit in 2004-5 and in 2015 the kitchen was redone with granite counter tops and new lighting. The ceilings throughout were smoothed, painted and crown moulding added.

Our unit is on the ground floor (what a convenience!) in Building 1 which gives us closest access to the beautiful beach on the Gulf side of Sanibel Island. There are two bedrooms (one king bed and two twin beds), two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room and lanai. It can accommodate six using a double high blow up mattress.

As a courtesy to our guests we provide two adult bicycles, a pack ‘n play and booster seat. A gas grill is located near the front door and the heated pool and tennis court are a short walk away.

The Complex

Villa Sanibel is a small friendly complex of 20 units in three two-story buildings. Unit 1D is located in building #1 and as close to the beach as you can find anywhere on Sanibel. Because the condo sits on the elbow of the Island, we have a clear view of striking sunsets and sunrises and you are a few steps away from picking up a shells or building a sand castle.

The complex is adjacent to the bike path and a short bike or car ride to the two food stores on Island, unique and interesting restaurants and shops. We have quick access to Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, the lighthouse, historical museum, movie theatre and Big Arts to see a play or hear concerts of all kinds.

Sanibel is nationally recognized as a destination not to be missed and if you come, you’ll see why.

Villa Sanibel

  • 5 of 5

47 steps from low tide, exceptional cleanliness, spacious, all sorts of amenities (bikes, BBQ grill, beach chairs, games, tennis court, etc.). Very friendly surroundings. Many restaurants to choose from. Totally relaxed atmosphere; a must go to. I've always preferred the East coast, but Villa Sanibel has converted me!

Villa Sanibel 1D

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful! We enjoyed everything about it. It had everything we needed right in it and is just steps away from the beach. The beach was very private and quiet. We will be going back as soon as possible.

Excellent Condo, steps away from the Ocean!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful vacation on Sanibel Island! The condo was very clean, well equipped with all the amenities one would need for a relaxing vacation. The beach is beautiful and full of shells, just steps from the door. We used the outside grill for cooking and we trekked around the Island on the bikes provided with the unit. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone who is looking to get away!

Beautiful Condo, Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Sanibel. The condo was very clean and beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. The beach is gorgeous. Lots of shells and bird watching right outside your door. It was very convenient to shopping, Ding Darling, restaurants, boat rides, fishing and water sports. The bike trails were wonderful and we used the bikes more than our car. The pool was really nice and the whole complex was very well taken care of. I highly recommend Villa Sanibel!

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We have been returning to Villa Sanibel for at least 20 years and still look forward to our weekly visit each year. A few years we returned twice in one year. The unit is always clean and has everything you would need for a wonderful beachy time. My only request is that we have better beach chairs--we love to stretch out and some do not open up all the way. (A minor flaw in a terrific unit.)

Great Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed repeatedly in both units for many years. Both units are well kept with everything needed for a great vacation and steps from the beach. We have stayed at several other locations, but none compare for ease of shopping and visiting Ding Darling or Tarpon Bay. Yet they feel very private. We bring our kayaks and ride the supplied bikes. It's the first vacation we plan each year and after all these years we never consider staying anywhere else. Works well for two couples as well as for families with children. There is a marvelous view of the surf and the beach is perfect for both sunrise and sunset viewing.
